In Bondi Rescue the audience see the action through the eyes of real characters like Reidy, Corey, Whippet, Deano and Hoppo who deal with anything from shark scares to mass rescues, resuscitations, lost children, thieves and perverts. Their larrikin (irreverent) humour while saving lives has charmed beachgoers and viewers alike.
Trent “Singlets” Falson was on the Bondi Beach scene long before cameras ever started rolling. A Bondi local, he grew up in the water, surfing the waves of the north end from the age of five.
Singlets joined the North Bondi Surf Club as a nipper at the age of 10. He then moved up the ranks to the senior club, where he did patrols and trained at an elite national level as a specialist board paddler.
After winning a national board paddling title at the age of 16 as well as various NSW state medals, Singlets became a lifeguard for Waverley Council in 1997.
But after six years on the job, Singlets decided to spread his wings and see what other careers were out there. Twelve years, a few job changes and two children later, Singlets is thrilled to be back for his seventh year as a Bondi lifeguard.
